Student assistance and support
Vocational upper secondary studies are planned in cooperation with students. Every student receives a study plan. In case a student needs extra support, for example, because of learning difficulties, he/she receives an individual educational plan for the organization of his/her studies.
In addition to teachers, students are supported by guidance counsellors, special needs teachers, school social workers, school psychologists and school nurses. Helsinki Vocational College also employs student activity coordinators to promote student wellbeing and participation.
Support for studies and wellbeing is also provided by the online service Toisen asteen yhteys (Close Encounters of the 2nd Kind).
